54th District Court only tries felony criminal cases.
Requests regarding settings should be directed to Paige Light, Jessica Ficker, or Deeanna Ayres by phone, fax, or mail.
If your client is going to enter a plea of guilty and a PSI is being ordered, please make sure your client fills out the PSI packet and email it to the Probation department at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the plea date. Therefore, your client can appear via Zoom from your office or appropriate location (not in a moving vehicle). If the paperwork is not timely submitted to the CSCD, then your client must appear in court with the PSI packet completed.
